“The planners dream goes wrong” Paul Weller

housing estate

Letting loose the lunatics – wasn’t the greatest of ideas
Giving them plans and money to squander –
Should have been the worst of our fears
The dream life luxury living was a pleasant No. 10 whim,
But somewhere down the line of production
They left out human beings

They were gonna build communities
It was going to be pie in the sky –
But the piss stench hallways and broken down lifts
Say the planners dream went wrong

If people were made to live in boxes
God would have given them string
To tie around their selves at bed time
And stop their dreams falling through the ceiling

And the public school boy computers –
Keep spewing out our future –
The house in the country designs the 14th floor
Old Mrs. Smith don’t get out much more –
Coitus interruptus ’cause of next doors rows
Your washing gets nicked when the lights go out –
Baby’s scream in the nightmare throng
But planners just get embarrassed when their plans GO WRONG!
